Call for projects requesting Virgin Media Television support into Round 34 of BAI Sound & Vision
11 Sep 2019 : Nathan Griffin
Virgin Media Television
Virgin Media Television is looking for strong, new Factual Entertainment Formats and Factual Documentary Series for the 2020 schedule across all of its Virgin Media Television brands.

The broadcaster is looking for informative, entertaining programming with broad appeal reflecting life in contemporary Ireland.

Virgin Media wants content that tackles difficult subjects with realism and warmth, making programmes that speak to the nation, reflecting their concerns and interests.

They continue to be interested in the milestones of modern living, the issues and dramas of life, and the major changes occurring in our society right now.

Virgin Media Television is particular interested in:

Returnable “brand-defining” factual entertainment formats and series, focusing on noisy and topical ideas in hour-long slots. We do exciting formats like Gogglebox and Living with Lucy, and new formats have been recently announced including First Loves, Generation Dating and OAP B&B.

Virgin Media would like to continue this trend of developing formats, which examine important trends and themes without lecturing the audience or bombarding them with facts and figures. We’re interested in the people behind the statistics; they want to survey their lives and get to know more about the subject matter through their struggles.

Unique access opportunities - Virgin Media Television want more exceptional access, as demonstrated by series like Inside Ireland’s Biggest Prison and Inside St. James’s. We’ve just announced another access series, Inside the Guards and we want more of this deep, honest access that gets to the core of institutions across the country. Who are the human beings that run these places and who are the people who avail of these services? What new access can be offered?

In all cases, the emphasis should be on compelling and gripping factual series, which shine a light on areas that we seldom see on television.

VM Television is seeking a range of powerful and captivating stories emerging from modern Irish life.

For those submitting documentary series or formats, a track record of great casting and confident storytelling is essential.

Virgin Media Television submissions must meet the criteria as set out in the Virgin Media Television Commissioning Guidelines. The broadcaster is currently inviting submissions from Producers or Production Companies only at this time.

All applications should be submitted through the Commissioning Portal

Deadline for submissions regarding Round 34 of the BAI Sound & Vision Fund for Virgin Media Television is Monday, 23rd September 2019.
